Detectives are appealing for information following shooting in north London.

Police were called to Wood Green Shopping Centre car park off Pelham Road at 20:39hrs on Saturday, 27 January following reports of a shooting.

Officers, including firearms officers, attended and found a 19-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound.

He was taken by the London Ambulance Service to a central London hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.

Detectives from the Trident and Area Crime Command are investigating.

They have established that the victim was in his car when he was approached by an unknown number of suspects who were in a black Mercedes A class. One suspect produced a firearm before firing several times at the victim.

Detectives would like to speak with anyone who witnessed the shooting or who saw the Mercedes driving away. They are particular keen to speak with the driver of a silver BMW who had to swerve in order to avoid being hit by the suspects' car.

Anyone with information is asked to contact officers on 020 8201 2713 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

No arrests have been made. Enquiries continue.
